is a high strength, self-bonding, elastomeric sheet applied
membrane. It is composed of a tough non-asbestos fiber sheet,
laminated to a polymer modified bitumen. Strataflex has
a unique "Stress Flex" fabric and provides a perfect
thin-bed or thick-bed application for the installation of
ceramic tile, marble, pavers, or brick. The elastomeric
base layer is a waterproofing membrane that is self-bonding,
self-healing and self-seaming.
adheres permanently to the substrate, forming a continuous,
impervious water barrier. The 40 mil thickness is calibrated
at the factory, eliminating thin spots common to liquid
applied systems. Strataflex stays flexible. It won't dry
out or crack under structural stress and is capable of withstanding
extreme climates. Strataflex
serves as a waterproofing and anti-fracture membrane system,
bridging up to 3/8" horizontal expansion and contraction.
Strataflex provides crack protection for finished floors
while waterproofing underlying and surrounding building
installation of ceramic tile products, marble, pavers, or
brick requiring integrated waterproofing such as: above
grade food courts - restaurants - balconies - decks - commercial
kitchens - showers - lavatories - parking decks - wood floors
& glass mesh mortar units - laundry rooms and other
areas needing above grade water protection. It can be applied
over: concrete - wood particle board - tile - VA tile -
metal - asbestos floor tile. Strataflex
is effective eliminating tile failures on structural slabs
under live or dead loads. Strataflex is also useful for
encapsulation of asbestos floor tile.
MEMBRANE shall be Strataflex thin-bed waterproof membrane
consisting of a 40 mil, self-adhering, two-component sheet
membrane. The reinforced fiber sheet is laminated to a polymer
modified elastomeric base sheet which is capable of extra
heavy duty service per ASTM C-627. Joints shall be a 2"
overlapping self-sealing design to form a watertight seal.
